This is an endagered breed from Poland. At the last census, in 1998, there were only 585 of these birds in existence. The breed was developed by crossing the Green-legged Partridge with the New Hampshire and has been bred as a closed population since 1960. They were developed to be good in harsh environmental conditions.

Males weigh in at around 2.4kg and females around 1.8kg. The eggs are brown with red speckles.
